Setting the timezone on a Fortigate router

Setting the timezone on a Fortigate router is important for correct NTP operation and is critical if you schedule a daily reboot of your Fortigate router. This can be set within the System Information section on the dashboard, or in the CLI. An example of setting the timezone via the CLI for New Zealand is below :

config system global
 set timezone 71
end

In order to do this you will need to know your timezone code and substitute it for 71 in the example above. A list of Fortigate timezones inuse on 4.0 MR3 patch 5 is below:
